OK, they've had a go at the Mustangs, so what's next?

New aero package for the Commodores?
Take a couple of cylinders from the Mustang?
Make the Windsor the control engine?
Half a lap head start for the Commodores?

If the situation was reversed, Roly would be calling for the rest of the field to lift their game....

Nup, the fix is simple, all they have to do is ban the Fords  and Nissans. Then I would have two of my favourite drivers (Scott and Chaz) driving my favoured manufacturer, Holdens would be able to win again, you may, I said may get a smile out of Roland, the world would be back in equilibrium.  K.I.S.S., geez why do they have to make things so difficult.

Loving the night races , great as a TV spectator but not sure that it would be as good for a on track spectator as day racing .

To be honest, it looks OK, but as a tv watcher, I really don't care. The cost of the lights , unless paid by a sponsor, only adds a cost that is not really needed.
Even though I've always been a Holden supporter, I really like Scotty  as a driver and I think he's going to street the rest this year for the title.

Well, what a waste of money.....a couple of mates said lets go. $60 for a ticket.....all set up for tv....couldn't see the cars properly, couldn't workout who was who, even with the under car lights.
Only lasted 20 laps........at my mates place watching his foxtel......and it is still not floating my boat anymore!!

Having been a spectator at this track in daylight racing , it is great . You can wander around and watch the racing from just about anywhere , and in some places you can see a fair bit of the track .

But at night I thought that your viewing would have been limited . Don't think that I would spend the dollars to go to a night time race , the atmosphere would be great , but can't see me doing it .

Looks fantastic under lights, may have a restricted view of all the cars around the track.
The main thing is that FORDS won again!!
Roland and redbull had their time in the spotlight....

That had to raise the roof line 10cm to make the Mustang fit around the Control cahssis/roll cage.  If they were to do the Camero it would be about a 15cm bubble to make it fit. 

It is how Supercars have been caught out, again.  Their Car of the Future is just so far behind what the manufacturers are producing, along with the other mandatory components.  By the time CotF.2 is released they will need CotF.3.

Not only that, the whole bonnet/nose is also about a kilometre above where it is on the road going version.......A mazda 121 looks a whole lot betterer....at least that is in proportion...........

Calling the ford a Mustang is a bloody joke , at least the Nissan and the Holden are close to the road going version . Both the Nissan and Holden could have factory guards , bonnet and rear boot/hatch bolted onto the car and other things light headlights and Grills are factory shape .

There is nothing that would fit the race Mustang that is anywhere near factory shape/fit .

There was once a rule that factory bonnets had to be able to bolt on to the race version , supercars must have deleted this rule otherwise the Mustang would not be ontrack .

On the subject of the Badge.  Maybe some clarification.  Mustang does not have the Ford mark on it, only a Mustang?

Ford  Australia haven't been a sponsor of Supercars for number of years now as far as I know and if you don't pay you don't get your name on the car.

Pretty sure it's in the rules that the badge can't be altered unless you apply for special dispensation.  Roland got rid of the blue oval for the pig when Ford withdrew sponsorship to 888 and Erebus changed theirs to  the Erebus symbol when they couldn't get the Holden badge when imported Commodore first came in, they still run it today. Suppose the fans are the only ones that have to look at the donkey atm , the Team Red boys can't get in front of the Stangs to see the bloody badge
